Our response to the coronavirus pandemic
Linde is firmly committed to supporting its customers and communities through the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. Our global, regional and local response teams are ensuring we continue to safely and efficiently deliver industrial gases to our customers. Through Linde’s Global Giving Program and our businesses around the world, the company has donated more than $1.6 MM in cash and in-kind gifts to provide relief for hospitals, healthcare facilities and affected communities.
In addition, Linde is prioritizing the supply of oxygen and essential medical gases in order to support hospitals, doctors, nurses and medical professionals as they care for patients with COVID-19. We are increasing the amount of oxygen production at air separation units, where needed, and are working very closely with local healthcare providers to anticipate demand and increase deliveries.
Linde has a strong track record of successfully navigating challenging times and we are working closely with all our stakeholders. We are proud of the work our employees are doing around the world and we continue to put the safety, health and wellbeing of our employees, customers and our communities at the forefront of all we do.
